Good recipes to share with friends.
My aunt and I were recently discussing potlucks. She mentioned her favourite potluck recipe – a broccoli salad. Right away, I checked the website and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t posted this recipe yet!
This is a recipe I’ve had for a long time. I’m talking 10 or more years! I’ve brought it to potlucks, I’ve made it for countless dinners and I’ve taken it on a few picnics, too.
I have a particularly fond memory of taking this salad on a picnic in Lac Des Arcs with my BFF. He absolutely loved it (which was good, because I don’t know how I feel about people who dislike broccoli) and we continue to make it and eat it with delight to this day.
Whenever I hear “broccoli” I think “rock-oli” (I blame my co-worker No Frills Fox for that). As I fought to come up with another pun, I realized I could combine the best of both worlds by playing an awesome rock-oli song about bros! Those Darlins are a funny group of lasses and gents making some catchy as heck songs. This was the first song I heard of theirs and it really cracked me up. I still find it wandering into my head every now and then. It’s called “Be Your Bro”:
This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about broccoli’s rock loving antics. If you’re into broccoli, check out Lost in Sautéed Broccoli and Garlic Salad; it will not disappoint. I promise.
But better yet, before getting out the frying pan and sizzling, try this salad. Once you’ve cut up the broccoli, it takes no time to whip together making it a perfect last-minute potluck dish.

Good for a dozen-person potluck.
